16 Companies Sponsor Orange County Fitness Business Conference

Chino Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) March 20, 2015

The Fitness Business Summit is the only conference designed to teach business and marketing systems to professionals within the fitness industry. Held annually and hosted by fitness marketing and business consultant Bedros Keuilian, the event is unlike any other educational system offered to fitness professionals. Hosted at the Westin Hotel in Costa Mesa, CA, this years Summit will be held from March 27-29.

Fitness Business Summit 2015 boasts the highest number of attendees in event history, 650, and will also feature significantly more sponsors than any previous year. With 16 independent companies supporting the Summit in the form of paid sponsorships, the event is primed to provide more benefit to attendees than ever previously.

Sponsoring companies include Muscle Ropes, one of the largest battle rope manufacturing companies, the popular supplement company Ideal Shape, and FitPro Newsletter, the only email marketing software designed specifically for fitness professionals.

Sponsorship packages grant event attendees access to special discounts and promotions available nowhere else. These packages, designed by each sponsor exclusively for Fitness Business Summit, will help the hundreds of fitness professionals attending the event operate more efficient businesses. The hundreds of optimized businesses will then be enabled to hire additional employees, stimulate the economy, and ultimately help more individuals live healthier lives.

Education in the fitness industry is hampered by a fatal flaw, said Bedros Keuilian. Nearly every fitness professional will, at some point, be required to open their own business. Its the only way to make decent money in the fitness industry. But none of the accredited personal trainer certification programs offer business training. Thats why I created the Fitness Business Summit, to teach those business systems that are missing from traditional fitness education.

Ive made it my lifes mission to create and empower entrepreneurs. Its the lifestyle that has brought me happiness and I strive to help others find that same happiness. And the Fitness Business Summit is just one of the ways I get to do that.

Sales 2.0 Conference Speakers Reveal How Sales Can Leverage Predictive Analytics

Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) February 24, 2015

Sales Dot Two Inc., producer of a leading industry event series for B2B sales managers and executives, is pleased to announce that experts from ClearSlide and Sales Performance International (SPI) will speak at the Sales 2.0 Conference on April 27-28, in San Francisco at the Four Seasons Hotel. Both ClearSlide and SPI are official sponsors of the event. Registrations are still available at https://www.regonline.com/Register/Checkin.aspx?EventID=1638682.

The conference is centered on the theme Creating a Predictive Sales Organization. Presentations will focus on technology, processes, and leadership initiatives that can help companies achieve long-term success and build a sustainable revenue engine.

The following two sessions will address the pressures and challenges faced by sales leaders in an era of predictive analytics.

1) Modern Selling with Insights Is the Key to Success with Millennials

In his session, ClearSlide Chief Operating Officer Dustin Grosse will address how the fact that Millennials will make up nearly 50 percent of the workforce by 2020 is changing the sales industry. Grosse will share how sellers, sales managers, and marketers can adapt to modern methodologies and new technologies in order to engage with this emerging demographic of tech savvy and socially connected buyers. He will outline how real-time customer insights and more predictive selling capabilities can help sales leaders keep pace with changing customer needs and expectations.

2) Why Leave Revenue Growth to Chance?

In his session, Keith Eades, Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Sales Performance International, Inc. (SPI) will address how sales leaders can plan for strategic revenue growth. According to Eades, industry research indicates that selling has been disrupted. Although hundreds of ideas and solutions could potentially improve the sales organization, leaders need insights to know what to invest in to drive improved performance. Eades will challenge conventional approaches and reveal a new way to think about continual sales improvement. His data-driven approach will enable sales leaders to focus on the highest payback areas for performance improvement. By aligning talent analytics, adaptive learning, and sales enablement, sales organizations can make intelligent, focused, high-impact investments in human capital.

Smart sales leaders are taking steps now to prepare for a future that is agile and predictive, says Sales 2.0 Conference host and Selling Power founder Gerhard Gschwandtner. Sales leaders need to learn how to harness tools that can help them apply data and predictive intelligence to create better, faster, more efficient sales organizations.

Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) February 14, 2015

A world-class leadership program created specifically for the timeshare industry is making its debut at the Fifth Annual Global Networking Expo (GNEX Conference) Feb. 15 18, in San Diego, Calif.

The program, Leadership Culture Retreats, is designed to help vacation ownership companies implement a lasting corporate culture that enhances productivity, improves employee retention and provides a more engaged management team to drive the culture companywide.

This first-of-its-kind series joins two dynamic companies with expertise in leadership and vacation ownership: Perspective Group, the premier independent PR and media company globally for the vacation ownership industry, and Advance Corporate Technology, headed up by Jim Madrid, longtime GNEX Conference emcee and Seattle Sounders Mental Toughness Coach along with many other roles.

Madrid has been in the business of helping individuals and organizations achieve ever-higher levels of success for more than three decades.

Among the diverse organizations that have benefited from his expertise are: Nordstrom, Lexus, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Paramount Studios, Trendwest Resorts, Oakley, St. Regis Hotels and Resorts and Pueblo Bonito Resorts.

Madrid teamed up with Perspective Group in 2014 to develop a curriculum that introduces a corporate culture strategy for vacation ownership companies that senior executives could adopt and grow within their organizations. The full curriculum is now complete and for the first time, companies will be able to book a Leadership Culture Retreat, at favorable rates during the upcoming GNEX 2015 Conference which is produced by Perspective Group, giving attending companies the opportunity to secure one of the limited retreat programs scheduled for 2015.

For more information, attendees can visit the Leadership Culture Retreats / Advance Corporate Technology booth in the GNEX Networking Lounge, or visit http://leadershipcultureretreats.com to request an information pack.

GNEX Conferences have facilitated many of the core issues challenging the timeshare industry globally with the top developers, vendors, marketers, said Madrid, who has served as GNEX emcee/facilitator since the conferences inception. Our Leadership Culture Retreats are the logical extension, helping senior executives focus their efforts for maximum return.

Leadership Culture Retreats For Timeshare

The series is comprised of annual, three-day retreats featuring workshops and group activities led by a team of facilitators. In Session One, entitled VISION, executives will help redefine a core culture that will instill in them a sense of ownership and involvement in the growth of their organization. The goal is to empower senior executive teams to spread the culture throughout the company for a more focused, engaged and productive workforce.

Each retreat is customized to the individual organization attending, with clearly defined objectives and relevant content relating to company structure, products and services and projected future goals.

We are delighted to offer this program as the latest addition to our Events Division, said Paul Mattimoe, president and CEO, Perspective Group. What attracted us to this partnership is the fact that it is unique within the timeshare industry. These arent training seminars or motivational sessions. This is three days with a mental toughness coach that fuses his extensive experience and incredible successes across many industries with his expertise in our industry.
